Watermelon and Feta Salad

DSC_0007It’s summertime in Arizona.  This is a refreshing salad that you can easily throw together for a gathering.


1/4 cup  orange juice
Zest and juice of 1 lime
1/2  cup diced red onion
2 tablespoons honey
1/2 cup olive oil
1 teaspoon  salt
1/4 tsp sumac
1/2 teaspoon  ground black pepper
1 watermelon  cut in 1-inch cubes
12 ounces crumbled feta cheese
1 cup whole fresh mint leaves, julienned
A sprinkle of Hawaiian Black Salt

Whisk together the orange juice, lime juice and zest, sumac, honey, salt, and pepper. Slowly pour in the olive oil, whisking constantly, to form an emulsion. This can be made in a day in advance. Store the vinaigrette covered in the refrigerator.

Place cubed, watermelon, feta, onions and mint in a large bowl. Drizzle with enough vinaigrette to coat your melon and toss well.

Sprinkle with Hawaiian Black salt and serve at once.
